Drawing on a player object

Perhaps I haven't played around with this enough, but I'm having 
problems with the basic drawing issue. For example, if I do the 

on mouseup
    choose pointer tool
    choose polygon tool
end mouseup

and then start drawing on a buffered player object, I get an image 
object on top of the player object... not a graphic object. There 
doesn't seem to be much I can do with that image object to distinguish 
the polygon I drew on it. How can I create an actual polygon graphic 
object over the player object? What's the code I need to use?
